Finally, if all else fails, then your most viable option is to ride it out. We know it doesn’t sound like much of a strategy, but couch lock isn’t permanent, nor is it life-threatening. Sometimes, you need to let these things run their course.
Typically, indicas are the main culprit, so avoid super-potent strains like Fat Banana, Purple Queen, Royal Cookies, Critical Kush, Sherbet Queen, and Sweet ZZ. Couch lock isn’t the only attribute each of these strains has, but it is a prominent one. If, of course, couch lock is desired, then you just found your indica hitlist. The only watch-out here is falling into a false sense of security and assuming potent sativas will leave you free of physical fatigue. As we’ve alluded to, the specific mechanism for couch lock is not an exact science. Many sativas have been known to inflict couch lock, especially after a heavy session.
We’re sure many of you will be well-versed in the cannabis slang for being “locked” in place. Some users liken the experience to feeling as though your body is melting into the sofa, filling the gaps in the cushions. Others recall a sensation that is like looking down at your body from above—although the mind may be active, the body is unresponsive.
It may come on unexpectedly. It might happen after working your way through several joints. It can even occur after enjoying an uplifting sativa. No matter how it happens, you will know it when it does. We don’t mean to make couch lock sound sinister, because, in reality, it is the furthest thing from it. In fact, couch lock is similar to being wrapped in a warm blanket that soothes and calms every muscle in your body.
If couch lock can be summarised as a feeling of complete and total relaxation, then only remedies that achieve the opposite will help break the trance.
Sorry to disappoint, but unfortunately, we don’t know what causes couch lock. However, based on (a lot) of anecdotal accounts, we can narrow down the possibilities. Broken down into their constituent parts, cannabis strains are made up of hundreds of active compounds. These include cannabinoids (CBD, THC, etc.), flavonoids, terpenes, and several other smaller molecules.
Some reports suggest the terpene myrcene may be responsible for the sedative effect. Unfortunately, strains that include low levels of myrcene also induce couch lock, so the verdict remains inconclusive. However the specifics work, what is generally well-known is which strains cause the heaviest couch lock—and this is your best weapon against the polarising side effect.
A second option is to try and smoke your way out of trouble. However, we don’t mean more of the weed that got you in this situation in the first place. Instead, try smoking a high-CBD strain. The compound has a unique ability that allows it to subdue some of the psychotropic effects of other cannabinoids.
On their own, it may be possible to test each one to identify whether it can induce couch lock. However, all these compounds have their effects amplified when in the presence of each other. Factor in that every individual smoker’s DNA is slightly different, and suddenly, pinpointing the critical instigator of couch lock is like looking for a needle in a warehouse full of cannabis plants.
